SOLUTION

3.3 The Road Not Taken


Chapter 3: The Road Not Taken

Think and write in your own words.

In which season does a greenwood turn to a yellow wood? Which stage in our life can be compared to that season?



SOLUTION

Greenwood turns yellow during the autumn season. Old age can be compared to the autumn season because green leaves turning yellow signifies that life of the leaf is coming to an end similarly old age signifies a person is nearing the stage of death.


Why did the traveller choose the road less travelled? What attribute of the traveller does it bring out?


SOLUTION

The road less travelled means the road had not been used by many which may have forced the writer to take an experience which very few had taken. The Poet's decision of choosing the other roadshows that he is an optimist who is full of hopeful confidence, spark, and creative energy. He is a person who believes in magic and endless possibilities.


Why does the traveller doubt that he shall ever come back?


SOLUTION

The poet wants to convey that one decision leads to another and we seldom get a chance to change them.


If you were in the traveller’s place, which road would you choose? Justify your choice.


SOLUTION

I am a very enthusiastic person and would therefore like to travel through the unknown. I like adventure and would therefore like to explore the uncommon path as the poet did. Challenges are something that helps me judge my capabilities. I would like to venture into the path which has been less travelled and unknown to the rest of the world.


Chapter 3: The Road Not Taken

From any collection of classic poetry or the internet, find another famous poem by Robert Frost titled ‘Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening’. Try to understand the symbolism used in that poem in 8-10 lines.


SOLUTION

Robert Frost's poem 'Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening' symbolizes the journey of life and a movement towards death. Almost every single element in the poem in that sense is symbolic of something. The undefined traveller on horse-back reminds us of the knights of the Middle Ages in the course of a heroic adventure. The cold and the dead of night and the frozen lake in the woods, the 'darkest evening of the year' - all these elements build an ambience where the immanence of death is at odds with the indomitable spirit of love, as exemplified by the traveller.

The owner of the woods is referred to but his name has not been mentioned. This can be a reference to the mystic and almost unnamable presence of God. The oath of the traveller to go on come what may, keeping his promises before he has to submit to the final call of death, an eternal sleep of sorts. The end of the poem is thus replete with philosophical symbolism.

12th July 2018.

Dear Malika,

               I hope you are doing great in your life. As you know my result will be out within a month. I have done well in all my papers. I am confident of getting more than 90 percent marks in all my subjects. But I was a little bit confused about what to choose as a profession - to be a doctor or an engineer and fortunately, it reminded me of you and all my doubts were cleared as you have always been an inspiration in my life.

               You know I have a great fascination for a career in medical science. I have been good at science since childhood. Besides, a doctor is the custodian of national health. He helps the suffering humanity, all these factors helped me in deciding my career in the field of medical science and be a doctor. You being a doctor have gathered a lot of experience, received love and affection from your patients and their family. This is something that impressed me and helped me in taking my career decision.

             I trust your judgment more than my own. Please let me know your thoughts on this subject. You are someone who seems to know right from wrong. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for letting me express my concerns to you.

Yours lovingly,

XYZ.
